GIRLS EMBARK ON NEW CAREER HERE Stale Counselor Household Truining Center Awards Certificates SOCIETY Schilling RICH HUNGARIAN Paprika EDUCATORS TOLD TO FAC1PGES Yale Chairman Warns High Schools of Increasing Responsibilities (I'nllfii 1'rrn hfanfil Wire) NEW HAVEN, Conn., Aug. 28.— The American people doslre not the limitation nor tho rejection, but tho fulfillment of tho Ideal of universal ireo public high school education, according to Dr. Clydo M. Hill, chairman of the depart men t of education at Yulo University. Hound forces To be sure, Dr. Hill says, u minority group of large taxpayers would not support any kind of unlycrsal secondary education at public expense. Tho really strong social forces which are operating to bring about universal secondary education will rnako tho abortive efforts of vested groups to Impose tuition upon high school students appear as mere flashes in the pan, Dr. Hill declares. Discussing tho subject of "Tho American High School, a Public Institution," Dr. Hill declared in an Interview hero that the high school even though universal, will still bo Ineffective unless Its program bo organized around tho study of current and predictably near-futuro social problems In which thoro Is common Interest. Old Subjects to Slny "Wllhoul doubl, geomolry, ancient history, physics, literature and all the rest of the traditional subjects will have their placo. but only as they relato themselves directly and dynamically to tho Interpretation, tho comprehension and tho over- varying adjustment) of social living," Dr. Hill asserts. "It Is cor tulnly tho responsibility of tho high school lo Impart Iho stores of know! edgo accumulated by civilization; but It is equally certain that it has also the greater responsibility lo help Iho student Interpret this knowledge In terms of his own living In a new social order, a changing ordur that always will bo new. Emphasis "It Is not so much a change of manor as one of emphasis that Is demanded. To give such help, ac count must be taken of the varying needs and abilities and capacities ol Individual Undents, In school and elsewhere, und It must bo recognize! that Iho aim for Homo Is merely to promote Ihe physical well-being of themselves and their fumlltuH, and thereby the prolongation and enrich men I of their lives while developing nucli understanding uf tho cvoluUot of race and national growth, of tho banes of social understanding and political life, and of tho social values of group and Individual morality as thoy aro capable of acquiring. For others who give promise of becoming leaders In tho continual pracosH 01 social reconstruction, unolher aim o Incalculable social Importance is their guidance and development to that nnd. More Trschlnt; Skill Needed "Teachers In tho more advance typo high schools will havo to 1« educated In a very real sense. Whlln a high degree of specialized know! edge will bo esenstlal and teaching skill will be Imperative, hroud general education will be Indispensable. Specialisation will be projected against Just the type of broad Integration sought for the students. l>e- partrnentitllnidoii its It now exlH.i makes It easily possible for Ignorant specialists lo gel by. "High school Icachers mutit be generally educated before pursuing their (specialties. Wllh such a pro- grnin Ihe Belecllon of competent teachers become* not only more Im- porlnnl but morn difficult."

Today, you eleven girls ?o out from the first Bakersfleld training center.

Sorority to Hold Supper Dansant orf Anniversary ON STYLE FRONT Bench Clothes No Longer in Masculine Imitation; Bloomers Return arc By MARY FI5NTRESS L'nltoU !*rM!i Huff Correspondent PARIS, Aug. 28. — Pajamas staying In bed this year and for tho first time In many years beach dollies look feminine. Tho old-foehloncd bloomers have come back into style — but they aren't tho voluminous folds of alpaca which used to sink or swim back In tho early 1000s.

Then, for after-the-awlm cocktails, thoro Is a little jacket In whlto plquo which Is mado llko a man's tuxedo.

Even more feminine aro the ankle- length flower printed linen cloaks and coots to be worn over brief lltlle sun sulls. These coats are so well tailored, with fitted waists and long, full skirts, that they aro equally appropriate for wear over simple cotlon dinner and evening gowns for Informal restaurant dining.

TROTZKY AVERS Russian People Arc Reduced lo Status of Serfs Says Noted Exile (Copj-rlilit, 1039. b>- United Pr«i) OSLO, Norway, Aug. 28.—Josef Stalin, Soviet Russia's "Iron man," has robbed the Russian people of the fruits of tho 1917 revolution and is subjecting .thorn lo a "privileged caste," Leon Trotzky charged today. Another Revolt Seen As a result, Trotzky predicted the Soviet Union ultimately must en- duro another revolution to secure tho freedom of the working classes. An exile here, under oath to take no part In politics, Trotzky's police guard will not allow him to receive visitors. Hcnco the Interview with the United Press was conducted by telephone. ' Denies Dolling Trotzky, accused by the Stalin group of plotlins with 10 men to overthrow the present regime and kill Its leaders, was hitter In his denunciation. Ho denied all parl In tho alleged "plot" for which the 18 were executed. The exile summed up tho situation In Moscow thus: "Stalin, tho bureaucrat, has killed the Bolshevist party, thus robbing the people of the frulls of Ihe October revolution." Mo predicted this must ultimately plunge the country into further upheavals. "Stalin represents tho privileged ruling caste." Trotzky said. "I wish tho people lo enjoy what Ihe Oc- lober revolution achieved. What Policy Means "Stalin's policy means tho revolution of a new class which In turn must result In an Inexorable struggle among all socllons. That privileged aisle fears the people, who llvo In ever-Increasing misery. Hence Stalin has been trying for years to etlflo all opposition In blood. "From now on all opposition will he called 'Tho Trotzkylsls' nnd 'Trotskyism' will be nn excuse for terrorism. "Death sentences will replace prisons and concentration ramps. Tims thi> new .Soviet constitution —'the most democratic In the world'—will be introduced. "This Irial In Moscow Is nol Ihe flrsl of Its type. Stalin several limes ha.s alternated such n compulsory unification of the people. "The greatest previous attempt was the trial of Zlnovlev und Kamenov In January 1835. At that time 1 wrote that It was u fiasco, that It would force Stalin to prepare for another und grander compulsory uniflcallon In Ihe near future. Not Filial Trial "But this Intesl Irlal. likewise, is not the final one of its kind.

STYLE SET BY MOVIES 100 I N POINT of character, there is one outstanding Item that, I be lleve, makes all the difference bo tween the weak and the strong. This Is especially demonstrated In child hood, yet I believe most parents nel ther notice It nor think of It. The strong personality knows ex actly what he wants to have or do The mediocre personality has no def Inlte Ideas, waits until something happens and then decides whethe he likes It «r not. The second type of child Is the most agreeable. He usually falls In with other people's plans, and ami ably fits himself Into any routine set for him. It Is easier than think Ing things out for himself. An anyway he doesn't care passlonateb enough for any one of his own bn.iln children to take tho trouble of fight Ing for It. Another View of Obstinacy The first kind, tho Intense chili who Is forever cooking up an Idei of his own and then Is ready to g through flro and water to attain hi purpose, Is the thorn in our side. W talk about his obstinacy and mu! Ishness and undisciplined mind ani sigh that we can't control htm. As u matter of truth It Is not from this file that our "heartbreaks come. At least not more Iban aver age, because their strength can b their salvation, and Is, more ofte than their undoing. On tho other hand, the child wh waits to select his feelings and ro actions, after something has drlftc his way, has a habit of being dlssa Isfled. To all outward appearance, ho Is plastic and gentle. In his hear very likely, there Is a vague. dUai polntment and a right constanl Jca ousy of others who have pushe ahead, through sheer force of wl and determination that ho himuc lacks. In between these two patterns nr all Ihe grades uf bolh. Possibly fe children, llko few adults, aro puntl this or positively that. Suit Training lo Temperament Yet In many cases Ihe character!; lies aro oulslanding enough to plac Ihe child, as far us his temporamei Is concerned. And I think all pa ents would gain tsomelhlng by clu vtfylng In general each child In th family. Not us "stubborn," "hcai strong or "unreasonable."; Pooches Selected for Pets Are Popularized in Current Films (United Prcft LeatcA Wire) HOLLYWOOD, Aug. 28.—Add the et shop and dog kennel to tho list leader, f businesses affected by the screen ndustry.
